    The Pieces Top in 100% European hemp knit jersey. 

    Comfortable, flattering and boxy with a lovely drape, this hemp version of our Pieces Top was originally designed to use up small offcuts of fabrics to ensure very little fabric waste. Features airy sleeves with a gentle cuff and a short waist so it sits at a flattering length with skirts and high waist pants or dresses without the need to tuck in. Airy, cool and super comfortable.

    Hemp is such a beautiful fibre for the planet and people but we have found it hard to source interesting colours in 100% hemp. This exquisite fabric is made from hemp which is grown and knitted in the EU. All parts of the plant are useful but in terms of how it performs as a textile, hemp fabric feels fresh and cool and is perfect for a hot Australian summer. Hemp is highly absorbent, it takes up water rapidly and also releases it quickly so on hot days this helps in regulating the microclimate between body and clothing, much like merino wool!

    We are super pleased to be making them right next door with the lovely folk at @wonderpants_au right here @themillcastlemaine! And many thanks for my lovely neighbour Kacey of @forestcreektinies for modelling!

    Hemp's eco credentials:

    Hemp is the key to our future! It is a densely grown plant that is fast growing, sequesters carbon and literally chokes out any competing plants. This means harsh chemical herbicides aren’t necessary. Hemp also naturally reduces pests, so no pesticides are needed. It also returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil. Hemp production requires much less water than cotton, and only requires a small amount of land to cultivate.
